Had a sort out of unfinished junk and some I had lost interests in - some bits to finish  and then create a small loco grave yard and scrap pile
so far two battery box critters and a compressed air loco

Kim is right - too bad for the junkyard - you should finish the models!

Hi, Barney how are you with painting is the thought of painting stopping you finishing. usually, I think that some finishes are not appropriate and the examples of museum presentation are the best, that is a primer and top coat from a hobby quality spray can .no weathering.

hi Kim - no its not the painting its just at times I get total peed of with the model e.g. taking to long - not satisfied with certain parts and worst of all scale "jumping" and to finalise accidentally dropping it in the paint shop the Ruth Diesel ending life like that !
Scale jumping I think has been my biggest problem but hopefully I have settled to the larger scale by building small prototypes - example small mining critters and mining equipment all built on small dioramas restricted to 2ft x 10'' so they fit in plastic container boxes for storage purposes
(since our downsizing in house) hopefully these small dioramas will be able to bolt together to form one larger exhibition type layout
So to sum up the scrap yard will be "highly detailed" collection of models at the moment building several small features such as an engine block
with cylinder head removed - old exhaust pipes - a galvanised water tank - old starter motors and generators and so on all small items that I know I can finish ! the mining critters will be on a dilapidated bit of track with rotten sleepers with the battery box loco down a bit of a ditch
So watch this space work is processing well and should have photos soon.

HI, Barney, you have hit on 2 very good points -space and future use I personally like the idea of building the smaller parts at least you can see some progress

The nice thing about scrap lines is you can build whatever you want, and all that lovely rust (sorry I'm dribbling!!)
Here's one just a few miles from me here on the Isle of Wight".

Barney,

I like the scrap yard approach. Much more than another finished 'cupboard exhibition item'. Very difficult to model with a slightly overgrown chaos. Some kind of barn(ey) find.

Les another classic load of junk loads of dribbling this end too !!
I think Junk - rubbish- grot with rust is part of life if you want a bit of realism in our world of models - but its also nice to see well looked after locos and trucks - its all about a balance
